Object Description

A stunning, fine and impressive antique Victorian 23.59 carat garnet and 0.32 carat diamond, 20 carat yellow gold bangle; part of our bangle and bracelet collection.

This stunning antique bangle has been crafted in 20 ct yellow gold.

The wider anterior face of this hinged bangle is embellished with three stunning collet set floral cabochon cut garnets, totalling 23.59 ct.

Each lobed garnet features a floral cinquefoil design, embellished with a claw set Old European cut diamond to the centre; the largest garnet further incorporates five Dutch cut diamonds to the arrangement.

The collet set garnets are each encompassed with a rope twist decorated border, in addition to an interlacing spiralling border, completing the design to the anterior portion.

The interior of the bangle bears the later engraved inscription ‘M. A. M. Lean, 14.12.1919, from Tho. Ogibre’.

This impressive antique bangle opens via a flush hinge and secures with a push fit clasp to one side, benefitting from the additional security of a fine link safety chain; the flush hinge indicates the high quality of the piece.

This stunning and substantial gold garnet bangle has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 20 carat gold; this higher carat of gold indicates the superior quality of the piece.

This impressive gold and garnet bangle is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.
